Hey, I want to keep ants but not just in a normal way .I would like to make my Formicarium out of LEGO. I am well on the way but my main question is how high should the living space be of the ants ?
I'd like to see the finished design when you finish?!?!?!

Re: ID help

Hard to tell from the photo but it looks like a Camonotus major worker to me. Did you catch the other ant in with her or did she produce those since you have had her? Sure did. Got about six workers now. I took a few other photos too but the quality wasn't worth posting. I'll try and redo but hate ...

Re: Welcome to the Camponotus Crew!

Do you have a way to cool them slightly so they aren’t so active? Is the shrimp easy to access? Well I unplugged the heating cable so it dropped about 7 degrees but the thing with the shrimp is that it's kinda big and the ants put their eggs (not the larva or pupai) in FRONT of it. So the eggs are ...

Re: Welcome to the Camponotus Crew!

Alex07 I’d be worried about bacteria forming very quickly from the shrimp. It would be an excellent protein source though. Still not sure why they did what they did with the brood. I know that's my worry too! Now three days. I'm going to check and see if they moved their brood tonight but if they d...

Re: Welcome to the Camponotus Crew!

So I put a piece of dried shrimp in a micro sized outworld in one of my colonies. I tend the other and while doing that I see my Camp colony taking all their larva and pupae out (leaving the eggs) of the test tube and into the micro outworld and dragging the shrimp into the test tube. They drag it ...

Camponotus Nearcticus seems to be a common answer. Can anyone confirm?

Re: Caring for a Founding Camponotus Nearcticus

How'd it go so far? I'm curious because I think I have one too! Still narrowing down but nearcticuc seems to be the common answer. Any tips would be appreciated!

Thanks,
Alex
